During the Semi reveal Elon said “Jackknifing is impossible.“

Will the magic that makes that possible on the Semi make it’s way to the Cybertruck?
11° is the point of no return towing a trailer - a jackknife is imminent and unpreventable beyond that degree of angle. Road conditions contribute generally in snow, wind, rain or black ice. At the end of the day it is the inattentive driver and accident situations that force a rig into compromised alignment. " Impossible" seems humblebrag beyond driver related reasons for jackknife.

WRT: Cybertruck Tesla customers who need it should be able to purchase as part of a tow-package upgrade *Jackknife* to their in-vehicle driver assist. Insurance Co's will rate accordingly. Owner's will enjoy the benefit of technology-driven tow-assist.

In the trucking industry, safety is taught as driver discretion whether to place load, rig and *self in unsafe and unpredictable situations. Elon could be programming Semi to shutdown in certain conditions. That would avert weather related accidents in adverse conditions remove DRIVERS from the equation - who are the ones that make poor judgements in the first place.

Is remote start on Tesla cars available without subscription? Any current Tesla drivers have Premium Connectivity and care to comment if the service is worth $10/month for the offering?
...
Based on what I've read, remote start is not necessary. You can set the internal climate and the electric motors are ready to spin anytime power is supplied to them.

If anything, I would delay my order based on...
  • Quality. Wait until they get a good handle on any initial quality control issues. Based on my position in the buying queue, I'd receive the option to purchase over a year after release. I would fathom they'd have a good or better grasp on Cyber Truck quality after a year or longer of manufacturing them, wouldn't you think?

This may sound strange, but my final purchase decision was completely based on a successful launch of the SpaceX Dragon. I figure if they can build a space craft that puts people in space....imagine what the Cybertruck will be like and how well it will be put together. I pulled the trigger like the next day for two.
You and I are in the same boat, or position if you will. I currently own Ford products. I liked Tesla. However, I never imagined owning one. I have a need for a truck to pull a boat. After watching the SpaceX Dragon I was convinced. I ordered my truck a week later. I ordered the dual-motor, it's in my price range.

I have unlimited free connectivity, but from what it sounds like there isn’t a whole lot you get for the $10/month. Some nav features and Slacker and a couple other things. As long as you have your phone you can unlock and start the vehicle from anywhere among other things, no need for premium connectivity for that.

I think your right. I am way down in the que of receiving my dual motor CT. However, the benefit
is seeing the refining come into play. Not too soon, not too late. Somewhere in the middle.

My question to a company that makes campers was if the cybertruck could tow their camper and this was their response......

Sorry but no..... you need a minimum of a 3500 (350) dual rear wheel 8 ft bed, etc....
As cool as the cyber truck may be.... it is Tonka toy compared to what you need.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions

I'm sure that there are campers that will not work with Cybertruck. Some 5th wheel setups would be hard to get to work because of the angles of the sides. But, Ask me if I care? LOL

I thought it was rude and ignorant that they referred to it as a "Tonka Truck"
